63CPE gets things started today with his Republic F-84LR.  This is a turbo prop F-84 used for long range bomber escort duties.  There is no doubt about it, but this design looks quite good and of course the highly polished bare metal finish is flawless.

Kees Kuyper has combined the wings from a Corsair with the fuselage from a  Bearcat to create his Corsair-cat.  I've looked at all the photos and this plane looks very realistic from every angle.  Kees has a natural talent for aircraft design.

63CPE is here with a beautifully done bare metal model of the 1/72 Myasichev Projet M.  This is a combination of a variety of aircraft and the article tells the full history and story.  I'm impressed with the story and model and especially that David would use a BMF on a kitbashed model.....that is VERY difficult to do.

Dave Bailey, aka The Rat joins us with The Crimson Kite.  This is a Czech jet that defected to the RAF and I must say it is odd to see a Czechoslovak MiG-17PF in these bright markings.  Dave's artcle tells the full background story.
